17 Cheap Bars in Singapore That Serve Budget-Friendly Drinks

Who doesn’t like to kick back and have an affordable and low cost drink after a long hard week

Bars. Filled with drinks, finger-food and great ambience, they are the perfect place if you’re looking for a good time with friends, co-workers or even family. However, with the high costs of alcohol and food, bars can be rather harsh on your wallet. Today, we’ve gathered a list of the 17 cheap bars in Singapore which not only have a great atmosphere but are value for money as well.

1. Stickies Bar

Kicking off the list of cheap bars in Singapore would be Stickies, an affordable bar with lots of entertainment. In fact, Stickies prides itself in having a large selection of games including Pool, PS4 games, Darts, Board Games, and beer pong for its patrons to have fun while savouring their favourite drink.

Stickies provides low and cheap prices for their alcohol through various promotions.

Beer-lovers get to enjoy Stickies’ $10 per jug promotion every day from 6 pm to 8 pm. If you’re a heavier drinker, Stickies Towerful Beer Pressure is available from Monday to Thursday and only charges $25 per tower from 6 pm to 8 pm.

The best form of drinking – day drinking – is best held at Stickies with their promotion of any glass of house pour liquor or a pint of beer priced by the time (starting from 2 pm and ending at midnight). So the earlier you start drinking, the cheaper it is, starting only from $2!
